1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

2 Command the sons of Israel, that they send·​·out from the camp every leper, and everyone that has·​·a·​·flow, and everyone who is unclean on account of a soul*;

3 from male even·​·to female you shall send·​·out, to outside the camp you shall send them; that they defile not their camp, in the midst of which I abide.

4 And the sons of Israel did so, and sent· them ·out, to outside the camp; as Jehovah spoke to Moses, so did the sons of Israel.

5 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

6 Speak to the sons of Israel, When a man or woman shall do any sin of man, trespassing for a trespass against Jehovah, and that soul be·​·guilty;

7 and they shall confess their sin which they have done; and he shall return his guilt with its principal, and add onto it the fifth part of it, and give it to him against whom he is held·​·as·​·guilty.

8 But if the man have no redeemer to turn·​·back the guilt to him, let the guilt be turned·​·back to Jehovah, to the priest; apart from the ram of the atonements, by which an atonement· shall be ·made for him.

9 And every uplifting of all the holy things of the sons of Israel, which they offer to the priest, shall be his.

10 And every man’s holy things shall be his; whatever any man gives to the priest, it shall be his.

11 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

12 Speak to the sons of Israel, and say to them, to each man*, If his wife deviate, and trespass a trespass against him,

13 and a man lie with her, lying·​·down with seed, and it be hidden from the eyes of her husband, and be hidden, and she be defiled, and there be no witness against her, and she be not caught;

14 and the spirit of jealousy pass over him, and he be·​·jealous of his wife, and she be defiled; or the spirit of jealousy pass over him, and he be·​·jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled;

15 then shall the man bring his wife to the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of the ephah of barley meal; he shall pour not oil on it, nor put frankincense on it; for it is a gift·​·offering of jealousy, a gift·​·offering of remembrance, causing iniquity to be remembered.

16 And the priest shall bring· her ·near, and stand her before Jehovah;

17 and the priest shall take holy water in a pottery vessel; and of the dust that is on the floor of the Habitation the priest shall take, and put it into the water;

18 and the priest shall stand the woman before Jehovah, and expose the head of the woman, and put the gift·​·offering of the remembrance on her palms, it is the gift·​·offering of jealousy; and in the hand of the priest shall be the bitter water which causes the curse.

19 And the priest shall make her a promise, and say to the woman, If a man has not lain with thee, and if thou hast not deviated to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, thou shalt be·​·innocent from the bitter water of these curses;

20 but if thou hast deviated to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and a man has lain with thee besides thy husband;

21 and the priest shall promise the woman with the promise of the oath, and the priest shall say to the woman, May Jehovah put thee for an oath and for a curse* in the midst of thy people, when Jehovah causes* thy thigh to fall in*, and thy belly to swell;

22 and the waters that cause these curses shall come into thy bowels, to make the belly swell, and the thigh to fall in; and the woman shall say, Amen, amen.

23 And the priest shall write these oaths in a book, and he shall wipe· them ·away in the bitter waters;

24 and he shall give· the woman the bitter water ·to·​·drink that causes the curse; and the water that causes the curse shall come·​·into her, to become bitter.

25 And the priest shall take the gift·​·offering of jealousy out·​·of the woman’s hand, and shall wave the gift·​·offering before Jehovah, and offer it at the altar;

26 and the priest shall take·​·a·​·handful from the gift·​·offering, a memorial of it, and burn· it ·as·​·incense upon the altar, and after this he shall give· the woman the water ·to·​·drink.

27 And he shall give· her a ·drink of the water, and it shall be, if she be defiled, and have trespassed a trespass against her husband, that the water that causes the curse shall come into her as bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall fall in; and the woman shall be for an oath among her people.

28 And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean, then she shall be·​·innocent, and shall be sown with seed.

29 This is the law of jealousies, when a wife has deviated to another instead of her husband, and is defiled;

30 or a man, when the spirit of jealousy pass upon him, and he be·​·jealous over his wife, and shall stand the woman before Jehovah, and the priest shall make upon her all this law.

31 And the man shall be·​·innocent from iniquity, and this woman shall bear her iniquity.

Explanation of Numbers 5      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-4. The man of the church is instructed that he must reject from the heavenly life every tendency disposing him to profane the truth, falsify it, or defile it by contact with any natural affection void of spiritual life.

Verses 5-10. Concerning offences against the Divine Law through ignorance or weakness.

Verses 11-31. On an offence against good through ignorance of the truth; the illegitimate conjunction of falsity with good; the disturbance of the internal man in consequence; investigation from Divine Good; the process by which innocence or guilt is discovered; and the results of guilt or innocence.
